Indigenous Peoples Day on Oct. 11 reshapes the narrative surrounding Columbus’ “discovery” of the Americas and honors our country’s first inhabitants: the Indigenous communities that have lived in the United States for thousands of years. This day celebrates the contributions and culture of Indigenous people and aims to recognize the deep traumas faced by their community, begin to repair relationships with Native communities and with the land, and serve as a reminder that colonization is an ongoing process, with Native lands still occupied due to deceptive and broken treaties.
